We have created this tour for people who want to visit and enjoy the best highlights of the Sacred Valley Tour, such as the archeological sites of Pisac and Ollantaytambo, Awanacancha, and the archaeological site of Moray and the Salt Mines, rather than just focusing on the various shopping centers. All of this is provided in a small private tour with a guide that is passionate about Inca history.
